tv KTVU Mornings on 2 at 7am FOX April 10, 2017 7:00am-9:01am PDT
good morning. the wait is over and you are looking at at&t park with the giants opening day hours array. we are live on the field with everything you need to know. mornings on 2 continues. >> this is steve mornings on 2 . >> hello. good morning i am dave clark. talking about the weather i was outside it is still chilly but steve paulson has it all under control. >> we had a little light rain up north in northern sonoma county and except for some morning clouds right now it is mostly cloudy but i think we will have some pretty rapid clearing with upper 50s and low 60s. there is a system that did produce some rain and it looks
like not a lot left. the low clouds are still holding on as it moves across but not much of this system as it moves south. the next system is taking aim to the north on tuesday afternoon in the evening with lost altos 38 and even 38 up in truckee and 32 toward sacramento and otherwise on the cool side and for us look for us in the 50s and the 60s with this next system wanting to move north. it is 7:00 and monday traffic is doing what, allie ? >> it is behaving like monday traffic. let's show you the map because the commute is keep having issues. west of the bailey road offramp
there was a crash that was tying things that you can see in the red congestion westbound and another wreck that popped up close to it westbound at the san marco offramp. that is impacting south on 680 there was an earlier crash and they moved it out of the way, but things are still very slow in that area. then moving over to 24 westbound through lafayette last week the schools in this area was on spring break and not everybody is back, and you can see that reflected toward the caldecott tunnel. the east shore freeway is recovering after the hercules offramp farther north of all of this but it is still a little bit slow getting to the toll plaza. things are slow to get onto this band looking at a 20
minute delay to get to the toll plaza. let's go back to the desk. a man shot and killed after police officers son in a car with a gun. >> ktuv's chris has more. >> we have a new perspective on this incident you can see this is the area that investigator seem to be focusing on at this point we believe this work may be where the officers filed the shot and fremont police are telling of it all started around 11:35 last night when a regional police officer reported spotting a gun at a nearby 7-eleven. that officer called for backup and those officers arrived moments later saying one man from that car was on foot crossing the street heading toward the mall where we are located right now. officers found him in an alleyway behind it walgreens.
both officers fired weapons and now cleveland police are telling us the shooting is still under investigation. >> right now this is an investigative operation and there was no public safety issues at this point they are going to be processing the crime and interviewing any witnesses to see if there is any surveillance. >> reporter: we have learned that both officers fired their weapons in this case with no word on whether the man who was shot had that gun with him at the time. that is still under investigation. one of the questions we did ask is at least one other person from the car was detained as well. officers are looking to review to see if they capture that encounter. coming back right now you can see these two vehicles seem to be the focus of the current investigation in the last 10 minutes or so we have seen
investigators taking photographs of these two police vehicles in the area. it is not clear if this is the vehicle being used by the officers involved in the shooting. we are still looking for more information from fremont police. you heard from the officer earlier that they anticipate this investigation will go all day long and they are saying they anticipate speaking with the officers involved in that shooting sometime later this afternoon. >> christien kafton , thank you. police in newark would like your help to solve the first homicide of the year for the city. a man was shot saturday afternoon instead of a car at a grocery outlook store parking lot and newark boulevard. there is very few details but pull but police may leave the victim was targeted. if you have information, call newark police. the chp needs more information about a drive-by
shooting on saturday on highway 4 about 3:30 saturday afternoon . the chp said the women who was wounded in the leg was one of two panhandlers in the area at the time. she was taken to the hospital and then released. it is not clear right now what led up to the shooting with so far no arrests made. in one hour neil gorsuch will be sworn in. already he was sworn in at a private ceremony at the supreme court with chief justice john roberts administering the oath followed by a public ceremony with anthony kennedy presiding. all of this followed the battle in the senate that prompted republicans to use the nuclear option which is something many call unfortunate. >> both democrats and republicans have lain here. they have handled things in a way that should not have been done.
we should not change our rules to accomplish a purpose. >> gorsuch fills the seat of antonin scalia. gorsuch will immediately be involved in the court business with a couple months left in the correct term. some of the problems with fire inspections in oakland maybe because of computer problems. that is according to a new report. the paper said oakland 's fire prevention bureau has an older database and the city is not paid for computer upgrades. they are in charge of building inspections. the ghost ship warehouse fire was not on the database and no one from the fire department has ever conducted a formal inspection. in egypt two terrible bombings at christian churches. isis has claimed responsibility for the attack.
reporter doug luzader has more from washington >> reporter: more than three dozen worshipers killed in the coptic christian church attacks in egypt raising questions about u.s. policy in the middle east. on a church in egypt was a stream in a palm sunday service when it was struck. the aftermath was gruesome with what was supposed to be a day to celebrate. it was one of two attacks and one of the assailants was captured on camera before a second explosion. from president trump a response on twitter -- so sad to hear of the terrorist attack in egypt. i have great confidence that president lcc -- president el- sisi will hinder it properly -- will handle it properly. >> reporter: there was the u.s. attack last week on a syrian airfield as a response to bashar assad use of chemical
weapon and this week secretary of state rex tillerson travels to russia. the top item on the agenda will be syria and the russian support of god with the initiation now speaking openly of regime change. >> russia should ask themselves what are we doing here and why are we supporting this regime that is committing murder of its own population and using heinous weapons? >> reporter: this will be a delicate dance for the secretary of state in russia this week. russia was seen as a potential ally in dealing with assad but now all that's may be off. in washington, doug luzader, fox news. >> the u.s. airstrike in syria is making gas prices rise in the u.s. with prices nine cents nationwide higher than two weeks ago. the national average is $2.43 and unless all prices
go down soon, expect gas prices to go up even more. >> honestly, it doesn't really cross your mind and tell you are usually paying $30 and then it goes up. >> if we are going up to four dollars i don't know what i will do because i'm in school so i might as well just put the car away. >> san francisco has some of the highest gas prices in the country averaging $2.01 -- $3.01. in san jose it is about three dollars. dozens of nfl players may be hit. coming up the athletes who could be in trouble after a las vegas competition. >> you know there is one day when you don't mind getting up early to see the sunrise and that is opening day of the baseball season. we have a live report coming up. cloudy skies in the morning,
you're not taking these. hey, hey, hey! you're not taking those. whoa, whoa! you're not taking that. come with me. you're not taking that. you're not taking that. you're not taking that. mom, i'm taking the subaru. don't be late. even when we're not there to keep them safe, our subaru outback will be.
(vo) love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru. welcome back. it is 7:13. today is the day many giants fans have been waiting for with the home opener. >> we have extensive team coverage live at at&t park. for you to do it i know it is a special occasion. >> and you look good, joe. >> reporter: you guys were not working until midnight last night like i was. i am happy to do that on opening day. we were just reminiscing with the giants executive director offensive operations. mario, i know you are a city guy and there is always something special about opening day but you started here as a bat boy
and in that capacity you got a chance to do something very interesting. >> i did. it was in august 1973 that i started as a bad boy for the visiting teams but that was when willie mays played for the mets in his last game was a sunday but he did not come out for batting practice record for the game started he came out to the right-field wall and walked across the ballpark and he asked me to play catch. i never forgot that. i was 12 or 13 years old and he and i still talk about that because i say don't throw too hard any promises he won't but believe me, it was coming hard. >> reporter: so mario has played catch with willie mays. i think people dreamed of what this might be back in 2001
opened but the giants own it free and clear. how many straight days of sellout? this really has become a gem of all ballparks. >> we have 30,000 season-ticket holders this year. this ballpark is beautiful. we never thought we would be in a place like this. it really is just something special. here we are in this beautiful ballpark by the bay in downtown san francisco but this connection with our fans and players is something that is really special. it is opening day and the best day of the year, absolutely. >> and you pointed out looking at the right-field there is something new and surprises on opening day as well? >> if you are coming out to the ballpark, come out early. it is going to be busy down here but be in your seat by 1:00 because we have a few surprises.
as you are talking about last year we started this tradition with our giants victory flag and we played tony bennett i left my heart in san francisco with a flagpole now on top so every time we have victory that song plays and we will raise the giant flag. your hoping today is the first day we get to give it a shot. >> i cannot help but noticing i remember when this ballpark opened ever thought it would be in triple digits but in the 18th season only 71 home players have hit the ball into the bay. >> there is something about the marine air, i guess. but you talk about this is not an easy place to hit home runs. but very did a good job of it when he was here. >> reporter: and the fact that a catcher was the first guy to
hit the triple here and then you remember opening day against the dodgers by one guy and it just didn't play an indication of why it would play the expect that is true and what is amazing is this is our 18th season here with daytime flying by and the ballpark still feels brand-new. it is just i don't know there's something about it. maybe we will have a few today. >> reporter: as a guy who grew up in the city, we weren't sure we would ever see a world series , and you guys saw three. >> this time of the year everyone is nervous about the first week. it will be a great season, and there is nothing better than this time of the year because everything's they are going to win the world series and it all starts at home today. >> reporter: mario who once
played catch with willie mays always fun to chat with you. >> joe fonzi, thank you. the giants are changing the reentry policy expect they will not allow internet privileges of the game begins. they say it will keep people safe. >> what do you think of that change? do you think it makes sense? maybe you would never think of leaving? >> i didn't know expect tell us what you think and what you know. you can take it with right now on the ktvu twitter page we also love to read your comments on our ktvu facebook page. >> all right. let's get you to where you need to go with allie rasmus watching our commute. >> i do not know you could not go in and out of the stadium. anyway let's take a look at what traffic is looking like
because things are improving let's start with a picture of 88 zero white pass the oakland coliseum -- right past the oakland coliseum. there was an earlier problem with 880 northbound with the tennyson offramp. a truck had lost its load and hit another car. this is about 45 minutes ago that this came in with both vehicles on the shoulder and things clearing up. you can see the impact it is having north and southbound. right near their is the summit -- there is the san mateo bridge. this me because of a crash that just popped up on the san mateo bridge where it connects to 101 south. taking a look at the bay bridge toll plaza things are getting busier and it is looking like a 20 minute delay. it is a 7:19, and i will send
it over to steve. >> thank you, allie. we have a morning event of cloudy skies with light rain to the north. one clouds and after and sun tomorrow sun then clouds and the best opportunity for us over the next five days or rain slick wednesday into early thursday cloudy and mostly cloudy at at&t right now but then at 1:00 we will have low 60s. here is today mr. donning downer . have the opportunity monday when will we be able to plant our tomato plants? not yet. it looks pretty cool here so just hang in. i still think we have some chilly temperatures and rain. look who got weather.
congratulations. even better a couple systems here one this morning was not a big deal cloudy with rain moving in tuesday night with a better system tuesday and thursday. the water here is october 1 and anyway you look at it everybody is doing very well with santa rosa 58.8 inches of water this year. 178% of normal. 27.52 in oakland and even san jose in the rain shadow. i know there is areas not far away that have more than that, but everybody is doing quite well. there is that weak system with light rain and now low clouds. we will get some sunshine here in the late morning with not a lot left here.
the next system looks impressive but it is aiming toward northern california with both parties with livermore and palo alto at 4 degrees. santa clara and morgan hill and gilroy at 39. 35 ed golder creek and a cool 40 degrees. probably mostly sunny skies this afternoon that staying in the 60s when the coast with the next seven days any rain? there is some rain but it is favoring santa rosa north. it does look like saturday through sunday evening the next system will give us some rain. 50s and 60s although this week does look more quiet than last week and i don't think these temperatures will budge much at all. a lot of clouds north of the goal and kate with enough rain. thursday looks like the best
opportunity. >> thank you, steve. still ahead, stanford students on alert as they return to class and what police have to say about the two incidents that happened minutes apart and what is happening with security on campus. san francisco city leaders considering a bill that could affect your next take-out order and how your health may also be affected.
students in stanford are told to be careful this morning after two sexual assaults. the police are visible in both women are grouped by a bald wightman 5'6" -- white man 5'6". chandler police are not saying if the incidents are related. the most ridges we spoke with are concerned. >> it is a little scary
thinking that they could be just a student in one of my classes. so you just never know. >> i have gotten many emails regarding sexual battery on campus. i think it is definitely a problem that has yet to be addressed. >> the stanford police suggest students walk together and only unlighted pathways. 23-year-old dylann roof was convicted of shooting nine people in h south carolina church and is expected to plead guilty today. he will plead guilty to nine counts of murder as part of a deal with prosecutors in exchange for a life prison sentence. it will also spare his victims and families the burden of a second trial. he was convicted of 33 federal charges last year and was
sentenced to death. at home a new bill could make california the nation's first state to ban chemicals linked to cancer from take-out containers. it would ban fast food from using packages and containers with the chemicals. they help keep the packaging from making liquids but they can also be spread to the food. keeping a watch on the capsize on friday. how much oil has spilled into the bay and how it could take weeks to know. opener in just a few hours. they will square off against the diamondbacks with a preview of the game here in san francisco and what you can expect if you are coming down to the ballpark. and traffic on the san mateo bridge is not going if
a gorgeous sunrise on this gorgeous monday that happens to be the giants home opener. we are with joe fonzi and they all raised their hands first when it came to this big assignment with a lot of people inside ktvu and the field looks great. let's see if the giants can turn things around today. i would sing in the shower or join the commercial another but never when we are on. thank you for joining us. i am gasia mikaelian .
>> and the gasia is a great singer. good morning. i am dave clark. we are talking about your weather for the home opener and everything else. >> some clouds, but they will be gone like this. some low clouds is all that is left of this system falling apart as it moves east and south. congratulations, journey, on the rock 'n roll hall of fame. we have topaz coming on probably one of the first journey songs ever. crank that bad boy up. easterday rain with easter evening rain. is the rain stopped right now, there will be a flower explosion. we already have one of the best in years in the desert and it is not stopping in april. mostly cloudy in the morning and
upper 50s with low 60s. we had some rain this morning earlier in sonoma county and into lake county. the low clouds continue to just drift across, but by 10:00 most of that will be gone. the next system is heading north with clouds and rain by tuesday evening. 40s and even 50 at the oakland airport with many 30s east and south. 40s for many and 48 after the morning clouds and mostly sunny skies. the next system racing right along. 50s and 60s after a tragic mourning on all right, allie . >> we will show the slow san mateo picture to you because these are kind of moving at a crawl westbound for the peninsula.
it may be because of a crash that happened just on the other side of the bridge. there is a report of a car and the budget rental truck that got into a wreck right before that interchange tying things up in that area. in the south bay a couple of crashes have popped up with the lower end of your screen having the hamilton on went to northbound 17 with the report of a rear end collision. taking a look at 24 westbound to the caldecott tunnel things are getting crowded and it is definitely busier on this road than it was a week ago. the bay bridge toll plaza is also looking slow this morning although the carpool lanes are moving pretty smoothly. if you have the option of a casual carpool or it might make your drive easier. let's go back to the desk. today's the day many
baseball fans have been waiting for. >> it is the home opener for the giants with ktuv's alex savidge inside the at&t park. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning to you . happy opening day with baseball bat here in san francisco. -- with baseball back here in san francisco. this is the best seat in the house here at at&t park with the upper deck out in right field and the get that view. you have a perfect view of the field looking out across the bay as the sun begins to rise this morning with the giants back in town and also the bay bridge as well in the san francisco skyline. we are hanging out. staci slaughter with the san francisco giants and vice president of communications. thanks for hanging out appear.
opening day here at the ballpark and first pitch against the diamondbacks. let's first talk about the players on the field and they struggled so far, but it is early pick >> we like to say it is a marathon not a sprint. we had a great win yesterday in the team hit really well with their first home run. we are starting to kick it in gear.'s back they are facing off once again for you. i think the giants can handle them and let's talk about what is going to be different this year at the ballpark. we have new food options and we have revamped some of the areas where the fans can hang out in left field. >> we always tried to do some new improvement to the ballpark. this is our 18th season. we have reconfigured the fan lot with still the famous coke bottle in the children's
playing field moving it over and trade in the toyota fan zone, which will be a great gathering place during the game with live music and ghirardelli has a new stand so you can grab a hot fudge sundae. that is just one of the things that we have done work >> and as we bring you back here to a live picture we want to talk about some of these giveaways. this is an important one on those chilly nights at the ballpark. this is the buster hug blanket. so buster can sort of wrap you up and keep you warm. also the window cleaning doll clings onto anything. don't fall there, hunter. you do have all sorts of festivities today. and of the national anthem will be

cutting down a treat that toppled down often it. ktuv's cristina rendon is here to tell us what is going on now. good morning. >> reporter: folks in this neighborhood are waking up to the sound of chainsaws as crews continue to work to cut down a massive tree that fell on this powerline last night knocking out electricity to nearly 2000 people. it came down on canyon road around 8:00. it is right next to memorial stadium and the property owner said he was getting ready to go to bed when he heard a loud boom and another resident described the sound being similar to a firecracker. he said the recent rains play a factor in this fall. >> the treat was doing -- they were doing cleanup work and we had spoken to them about the tree. they had said it could potentially fall and they
thought it was pretty safe. that would have been about one year ago. in the last year. >> reporter: they said they were initially close to 2000 people close to power out last night. they hope to have power restored to everyone by 18: 30 tonight -- 8:30 tonight. if you do plan to come down to memorial stadium, keep in mind that canyon road is closed off with many having to head back in the other direction. >> all right, cristina rendon, thank you. we are waiting for an update on that barge that capsized friday south of the bay bridge. in the king fuel that -- a leaking fuel that said there is
no additional sign. the barge is capable of carrying 4000 gallons of diesel and 300 gallons of hydraulic fluid but we do not know how fall they were when the vessel capsized. it is used for maintenance. the last time we checked it is still out in the water and the coast guard said it is impossible to know how much spilled until they lived the boat and let me take weeks. there was an emergency landing in modesto by alaska airlines flight. a warning light indicated a possible fire in the flight was heading to san diego when the fire extension system was activated and it turns out there was no fire. >> we had no visible signs of fire on the inside of the plan. we were getting a heat source in the cargo area but after
investigation we found it was just normal operations of the plan expect they think a bad signal have triggered the morning. dr. torres airlines trying to get its operations back to normal today with bad weather counseling many flights over the past week. bad weather at the delta atlanta hub has effective operations since last wednesday. the cancellations come on one of the busiest travel weeks of the year with spring breakers trying to get to their destinations. >> we missed our 24 year anniversary first ever carnival cruise to the bahamas. >> the boat left. >> one family in florida said when delta was looking for volunteers to give up flights they were able to get more than $4000 in gift cards for a family of three and they did it again the next day received $11,000 in gift cards into two
days. a sheriff's deputy recovering after a suspected drunk driver ran head-on into his patrol car. it happened right in front of the fireside inn on shoreline highway. the other driver lost control going around a curve and then smashing into the car of the deputy. the deputy was treated for minor injuries and investigators did arrest justin satterfield who was facing charges. witnesses told police a lexus driver was speeding southbound on 280 when he hit another car. that car flipped over but the only person inside was not seriously hurt. then it hit a honda and that driver was so hurt he cannot get out of the car. >> this was a spectacular
collision in many did stop and many did go to try to get him out and unfortunately they were unsuccessful. >> chp identified the driver as jerry tram of san jose. both he and his passenger were taken to the hospital. they are expected to survive. tram was then arrested. today there will be changes to the caltrans schedule. it will affect your morning and evening commute and they are being made to make it easier for passengers to connect with public transit. that work is focused on electrifying the rails for a look at all of the schedule changes go over to www.ktvu.com . let's go back to allie rasmus to check our commute. >> we're going to start with the south bay with a couple issues. let's take a look at the map in
san jose. we have the hamilton on-ramp crash with a rear end collision out of the screen. what you're looking at here is a crash on montague expressway and 82 car wreck blocking the fast lane. also something to be aware of is this westbound 237 where it can next -- connects at 880. chp says a lot of cars or swerving so definitely be aware of that if you are going to the northbound south bay. further north through the oakland area you can see it is getting slow toward the downtown oakland and also taking a look at the east short freeway your drive is about 40 minutes with some earlier crashes on westbound 80 in hercules area which has been resolved.
this freeway is typically slow anyway. taking a look at the bay bridge toll plaza slow going to get onto the span probably taking 20 minutes to get through that mess but if you are looking in the carpool lane you should have an easy drive in. it is 7:50, and i will send it over to steve. >> we have mostly cloudy skies with a weak system moving across losing a lot of umph as it does. northern sonoma county and parts of mendocino county and it is overcast in richardson bay idc a few breaks in those clouds. thomas smith is in san jose with 41 degrees. it is chilly and the visible forecast is mostly cloudy in the morning and mostly sunny this afternoon with low 60s.
speaking of san francisco, today is 60 and 49. the record not that long ago in the record low 1927 when it was a cool 40. you can see that system just falling apart up north and some couple breaks but we will start out with partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies in the system will drag across. there is a series of systems which will continue to take aim not looking at any high pressure . there'll be a lot of clouds this week is for these and up to 50s and some of that cloud cover coming in with little more saying 39. san ramon is now both parties and walnut creek is 43 with martinez at 46. southwest will have a little breeze today and temperatures staying near the 60s here with
42 in sacramento and 50 down in blake. 52 in las vegas with 62 in los angeles. it is pretty quiet is not that warm in southern california. this system is tracking toward the north and it will drag across the north bay tomorrow. overall the next seven days there will be a system on wednesday night and thursday that looks okay with santa rosa north and then a break right after saturday. late sunday afternoon that system roles in by this time next week. the point is we keep it going and there is no sign of that letting up with 50s and 60s in the temperatures which are stuck here for a while. i don't really see any changes on the highs. you will have all in on rain. >> we got it.
three astronauts are ready to come home to earth. today a sealed of the spacecraft and they spent 173 days in space. they are expected to land today. dozens of people took part in the napa valley triathlon and were treated for hypothermia. one race participant climbed onto a bike after swimming in lake berryessa and then went down while riding on knoxville road.

we continue to follow news in fremont with a man shot and killed overnight. what police spotted just moments before opening fire. more followed from the u.s. airstrike in syria and the latest coming up. >> traffic looks okay in most spots. coming up a little bit more about what is going on and right now this is oakland with both directions looking good. a cold front giving us low clouds and plenty of sun breaks. it looks pretty good for the giants home opener.

it is something so special. in fact, i've always heard that the most important thing that a president of the united states does is appoint people to hopefully great people to the united states supreme court, and i can say this is a great honor. [ applause ] and i got it done in the first 100 days. you think that these -- that is easy? this ceremony has special meaning as justice course which -- louise -- as justice gorsuch is filling the spot of antonin scalia and justice scalia was a patriot who repaired our constitution. he was beloved by many who are
here today, and he is deeply missed by all of us. i want to out of this time recognize his incredible wife more rain -- maureen, who are caught to know very well. please stand. thank you very much. thank you. americans are blessed to have in neil gorsuch a man who will be a devoted servant of the law and in the past two months the american people have got into truly admire the newest member of the supreme court. in justice gorsuch they see a man of great integrity. they see a man of unmatched qualifications and most of all and most importantly they see a
man who is deeply faithful to the constitution of the united state's. he will decide cases based on not his personal preferences but based on a fair and objective reading of the law. today we have all three branches of government represented at this event. it is a very special thing, and a very special happening. and it is worth taking just a minute to remember what it all means. in our founders' wisdom, they gave each branch of government a different role in our great republic. we have a congress to read the laws in behalf of the people. we have a president to enforce those laws and a supreme court to apply and interpret the law
in a fair and impartial manner when the disagreements arise. the founders separated power because they knew it was the best way to protect our citizens and keep our constitution secure . justice gorsuch, you are now entrusted with the sacred duty of defending our constitution. our country is counting on you to be wise, impartial, and fair. to serve under our laws and not over them and to safeguard the right of the people to cover their own affairs. i have no doubt you will rise to the occasion and that the decisions you will make will not only protect our constitution today but for many generations of americans to
come. in just a moment justice gorsuch will be sworn in by justice kennedy a great man of outstanding accomplishment throughout his 30 years on the supreme court justice kennedy has been raised by all for his dedicated and dignified service. we owe him an endless debt of gratitude and i am honored that he is with us today. [ applause ] this is a very special moment because many years ago a young neil gorsuch started his legal career as a clerk to justice kennedy. it is a fitting testament to justice kennedy's impact that
upon giving the l to justice course which he will be -- giving the oath to justice gorsuch who will be the first to serve with one of his former law partner's. it has never happened before. it also shows you have a lot of respect for this man. we are thrilled to share this moment with justice kennedy and all of you here today and with all americans watching us at home. justice gorsuch, i congratulate you and your entire family, and i wish god's blessings on your amazing journey ahead. i have no doubt you will go down as
one of the truly great justices in the history of the united states supreme court. i know invite justice kennedy to say a few words. thank you very much. [ applause ] >> thank you, mr. president. mr. chief justice and my fellow adherents to the idea of the rule of law as many of you know, there are two shook ones that a member must take in the first is the constitutional oath that applies to all three branches of the government. the second applies just to federal judges. both of the elves -- oaths date
from the founding of the republic. they remind us that we as a people are bound together. we find our self-definition and respect and heritage and destiny in the constitution. and so justice gorsuch, there is one oath remaining for you to take before you may receive and accept your commission from the president of the united states. are you ready to take the oath? are you ready to take the oath, justice gorsuch? please rise right hand and repeat after me.
i, neil and neil gorsuch do solemnly swear that i will administer justice without respect to persons and do equal right to the poor and to the rich. and that i will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as associate justice of the supreme court of the united states under the constitution and laws of the united states so help me god. congratulations. >> you're watching a live family in the white house rose garden as we see the newest supreme
court justice being sworn in by his former boss, justice anthony kennedy at 14 years old judge gorsuch is the youngest nominee since clarence thomas when he was confirmed at 43. no doubt president trump and many look forward to him serving for decades as the ceremony continues we are bringing it to you over on ktvu plus and following the subelements. >> we will take a break and be right back. businessman 2: we've gone over the numbers several times, and...

to go. one of my favorite days of the year really since growing up here in the bay area especially those high school days i would save a sick day for a particular game. just standing on the field bringing back memories with my wife nine months pregnant and she was concerned about having the baby at the park and i said i am sure they have good medical staff here. my son never came that day so his birthday coming up seven years ago. joe fonzi, come on in. when we talk about opening day memories, what about for you? >> reporter: i just learned a lot about you i did not know before. it is always nice to reflect and this will sound like i'm 100 years old but the first one i ever worked professionally was 1996 when the giants had
just been saved from a moved to toronto. it was astroturf and bobby mercer hit a home run and that was the first one i ever worked. i think they had 30,000 fans that game. we are going to bring in a guy right now who was the director of field operations and you don't have the astroturf to deal with but i look at this field and it is just about perfect. what do you guys do? it is pretty much a year-round job to keep this field. >> it really is. everyone knows about our 81 home game. we really have a lot of even as well. this is a year-round venue. >> what is the biggest challenge with the in season concerts? that was make you cringe when you see people on the field?
>> it does, but we have a really good team here and be plan a lot all the details so we can get rest at night. >> reporter: what are some of the things you guys do? you have some paint on the field for opening week and then you have to do that and i notice these guys on the infield i am sure the players like the field a certain way. >> we are very fortunate with one behind the plate and so we just try to maintain the field. >> do they ever give you thanks? >> every now and again we will get some positive feedback and that is always good. >> there is a famous story 1962 with the mvp of the giants and
the dodgers and actually they were in the world series that year but he was the manager and he used to direct the ground crews to keep it as weather as possible. did you ever get complaints from visiting players who say it is a little too hard? >> not really. i guess everything is a little more standardize and people don't really take that home- field advantage to that degree anymore. hopefully everyone enjoys playing. >> i know that people love to see the way the place looks and that is a big thanks to you. thanks for taking a minute with us. >> happy opening day. >> reporter: same to you. >> i want to run the bases. the last home game the giants had coming into 2017 they had a
rough week on the road. you would expect them back in the playoffs this year. >> reporter: they certainly feel they should be competitive the whole time. i think right now they want to say seven games does not make the season you can come out here and run the bases later on in the year. we have a busy morning for you guys with larry any little bit and alex savidge is getting in trouble somewhere. we will check back in with him. sending it back to you at the studio. >> thank you. we continue to follow developing news in fremont with a man shot and killed by police. what officer spotted moments before they opened fire. in the middle of a storm destiny struck.
